“Alhumdu lil laahil Lazee At’amana Wa Saqaana Wa Ja’alana Minal Muslimeen”.

Translation: “All Praise is due to Allah, who has blessed us with food and drink and made us from amongst the believers (Muslims).” (Abu Dawood Pg.573)

Dua to remove anger being one of the duas that every Muslim must memorize:

Anger or wrath is a very dangerous thing and people can do blunders when angry. Thus, controlling the anger is very important and if you get angry then getting rid of it is even more important. Following is the dua which removes anger when recited at the time when you are enraged.

Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) said of the Dua that removes anger that:

 “If a person reads (this) when he is angry, then his anger shall go away.

Subhaanal lazee Sakh’khara Lana Haaza Wa Maa Kun’na Lahu Muqrineen Wa In’na ilaa Rab’bina La Munqaliboon”.

Dua before entering the washroom:

There is a dua before entering into washroom which is as follow:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْخُبْثِ وَالْخَبَائِثِ

“Allahahuma inni ‘A’oodhu Bika min al-khubthi wa’l-khabaa’ith.”

Translation: “O! Allah I seek refuge in You from the male, female evil and Jinns.”

 Zayd ibn Arqam (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Holy Prophet (SAWW) said, “These toilets are haunted (inhabited by devils), so when anyone of you goes to the toilet let him say, ‘A’oodhu Billaahi min al-khubthi wa’l-khabaa’ith (I seek refuge Allaah from the male and female devils).” [Narrated by Abu Dawood, 6; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood]

Dua for stress relief and getting rid of anxiety:

When we are stressed, the best way is to make dua to Allah to remove your stress and give you peace of mind and soul. There is also a hadith in which a way to get rid of stress and anxiety is mentioned which is as follow:

“If anyone constantly seeks pardon (from Allah), Allah will appoint for him a way out of every distress and a relief from every anxiety, and will provide sustenance for him from where he expects not.” [Abu Dawud]

أَسْتَغْفِرُ اللّٰهَ

There is a dua when you leave the home about which Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) said, “Whosoever recites this dua (below mentioned) before leaving his home, all his difficulties will go away and he shall be protected from the mischief of his enemies and shaitaan will stay away from him.”

بِسْمِ اللهِ، تَوَكَّلْتُ عَلَى اللهِ، وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللهِ

“Bismil laahi Tawak’kaltu Alal laahi Wa Laa Hawla Wa Laa Quw’wata il’la bil’laah.”

Translation:In the Name of Allah, I have placed my trust in Allah; there is no Might and no Power except by Allah.”
